Hair Loss in Menopause

Embracing Healthy Hair Through Menopause

Hello there, beauty! If you’re reading this, chances are you’re experiencing some changes in your hair due to menopause or pre-menopause. First off, let me assure you: you are not alone, and it’s perfectly normal. Many women go through this transition, and while it can be frustrating, there are ways to manage it and maintain the luscious locks you love.

Why Hair Loss Happens During Menopause

During menopause, your body undergoes significant hormonal changes. The decrease in estrogen and progesterone, which are hormones that help hair grow faster and stay on the head longer, is a big factor. On the flip side, the relative increase in testosterone which is the hormone linked with male pattern baldness a derivative called DHT can cause hair follicles to shrink, leading to thinner hair and more hair loss.

But it’s not just about the hormones. Your scalp might also start behaving differently. You could notice an increase or decrease in oil production, which affects how your hair looks and feels. These changes can influence how hair follicles function, impacting your hair’s health and growth cycle.

Along with scalp changes our hair can change too. Hair can become soft and downy or coarse and dull. Curly hair can straighten out and straighter hair can become curly. Learning how to care for your scalp will in turn help you manage the changes your hair will go through.

Our Philosophy: Plant-Based Solutions for Hair Growth

At our brand, we believe in harnessing the power of nature to support your hair’s health. We use plant-based vasodilators, which help increase blood flow to the scalp. This increased circulation can extend the anagen phase, the growth phase of the hair cycle, ensuring more hair is actively growing at any given time. By improving blood flow and providing essential nutrients, we aim to keep your hair healthy and vibrant. We also use natural DHT blockers to help stop the formation of calcification which is what suffocates the the new hair as its trying to emerge, this formation is what leads to ministration of the hair follicles, thus leading to hair loss and thinning.

Techniques to Support Hair Growth

Hair Stamping/Micro-Needling

One of the techniques we recommend is hair stamping or micro-needling. This involves tiny needles creating micro-injuries on the scalp, which can stimulate hair growth by encouraging the body to send more blood and nutrients to the area. This can help rejuvenate your hair follicles and promote healthier, thicker hair.

Infrared Therapy

Infrared therapy is another effective method. It uses light to penetrate the scalp and stimulate hair follicles. This can help increase hair density and thickness by promoting better circulation and nutrient delivery to the scalp.

Supplements for Hair Health

Supplements can play a crucial role in maintaining healthy hair. We recommend taking supplements that include:

  • Raspberry Leaf: Known for its hormone-balancing properties.
  • Keratin: A protein that strengthens hair.
  • Biotin: Essential for hair growth and overall scalp health.
  • Zinc: Supports hair tissue growth and repair.
  • Collagen: Provides the amino acids that make up hair proteins.

We recommend taking Encore and/ or Belle to help feed the hair within and balance hormones.

A Routine to Embrace for Life

Creating a routine is key to maintaining your hair’s health during menopause and beyond. Here’s an example:

  1. Supplementation

    • Take your hair supplements with a glass of water.
    • Use a gentle, plant-based shampoo and conditioner that contain plant-based vasodilation and DHT blockers.
    • Apply Revitalise scalp serum to calm the scalp, improving skin barrier and follicle health, with the benefit of plant-based vasodilators to promote blood flow.
  2. Tools

    • Perform hair stamping/micro-needling once to twice a week on a clean scalp.
    • Apply infrared therapy after micro-needling.
    • Massage your scalp to increase circulation.
  3. Weekly :

    • Pre-treat scalp with hair oil and massage to improve follicle, and skin barrier health to provide a healthy environment to grow strong hair.
    • Apply Reinforcement to ignite health growth through powerful vasodilating properties. 
    • Ignite growth and remove dead skin cells with scalp exfoliation. Mix Rejuvenate Dust with Oil as an invigorating scalp and follicle cleanse.

Remember, consistency is key. These practices should become a part of your lifestyle, not just a temporary fix. The results will be maintained as long as you continue to incorporate these methods into your routine.
